A Warm Front

We had sunshine and 60’s here today. This was a temporary relief from this long, cold winter. Ava and I spent the entire day outside. We went to Old Orchard’s playground and spent the rest of the day in the deck or in the courtyard. Summer is going to be amazing!

Shedd Aquarium

Sunday family fun day was held at the Shedd this past weekend. Dave and I enjoy seeing Ava run to the tanks and point at the sea creatures. She loved the creatures as much as the gift shop!It was just warm enough to snap a family photo by the lake.

All Jacobs Must Love Sushi

Anyone that knows Ava’s Dada knows that sushi is my favorite food in the world.  I could eat it every day forever without ever getting bored.  Nothing makes me more happy and proud than seeing my little doll face eat some sushi on her own.  Just a cucumber roll but it is a good start.

Looking Forward To Spring

Awesome Family Local Vacation

We took a local vacation to get out of the city and enjoy a indoor water park since this winter has been so brutal and is never-ending. We went to Keylime Cove in Gurnee for 2 nights and Ava had a blast. We enjoyed the water park and ran around the hotel plus we played lots of games and won lots of toys in the different crane games. Saturday afternoon we went to Jump America so Ava could jump on the trampolines. We had to break the rules since the jumping was for kids 3+ but we got away with it for about a half hour and Ava had a blast. Fun weekend and more great memories for the Jacobs Family….

Ava The Magnificent

Ava is proud of every new thing she learns. Watch her stand at attention each time she stands and balances the toy. Also notice her hands behind her back each time she does it.

Our Little Actress

Ava loves copying what we do from coughing to rubbing our noses. She started copying Christine yawning and now she is our little actress and does a good job fake yawning when asked.

Had a nice day that started with brunch at The Bongo Room followed by the Swedish Museum. We ended up the day with dinner with Grandpa at Scoozi. We all love Sundays.




Happy Valentine’s Day

We had a nice 2nd Valentine’s Day celebrating with our Angel. Last year was sushi at Sai Cafe and this year we went to Prasino at 5pm. It was a little fancier than expected but we had a nice time and Ava enjoyed checking out the fire place and people watching.

Teddy Bear’s Picnic

Today’s Valentine’s Day. Ava and I went to the Emerald City Theatre to watch the Teddy Bear’s Picnic. She went right up to the bear and kissed it! This one is it shy! She kept trying to interact with the bear, so I had to hold her back. She makes me laugh!

Juice Box Music

Ava and I jumped on the Blue Line train to the Chicago Cultural Center. They played live African music and had a dancer moving to the beats. The venue was breathe taking and the music was right up our alley!
